Competition: EURO Nations League

Market: Over 2.5 goals

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

In what could prove to be a lively contest in the Spanish capital this weekend, the former world champions will host a resurging Ukraine on Sunday night.

Starting with the hosts, managing to snatch what was the most dramatic of last-gasp equalizers away at fellow former world champions Germany on Thursday night, Spain should be glad to make a return to home soil this weekend. Electing to head in a far more youthful direction after their abysmal showing out in Russia two years ago, La Roja are in the midst of a 12-match unbeaten run and have shown plenty of improvements since Luis Enrique made his return. Last seen on home soil back in November when signing off their successful EURO 2021 qualifying campaign with a thumping 5-0 win against Romania, the former Barcelona boss has seen his starlets win each of their last six straight contests in the capital, a run that has seen them put seven past Malta and a trio of strikes against surprise package Sweden.

As for the visitors, opening their Nations League campaign with a deserved 2-1 win at home against last year’s semi-finalists Switzerland, Ukraine have only continued to shock many from across Europe. Enjoying what has been a stunning resurge over the past two years and managing to book their spot at EURO 2021 in empathic fashion, the Yellows have gone from strength to strength since bringing in former icon Andriy Shevchenko. With West Ham star Andriy Yarmolenko continuing on what has been a stunning international purple patch, Ukraine are unbeaten in their last 11 outings on the bounce, a run that stems back to November 2018. Manging to clinch top spot in Group B, it should also be noted that during their eye-catching qualifying campaign Sunday’s guests picked up a stunning 2-1 win against Nations League defending champions Portugal last year.
